And the casting woes continue for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It’s as if telling the powers that be “NO” is en vogue around Hollywood. Here’s some advice: If you guys really wanna make this movie, instead of wasting more time being snubbed by all these big-name celebs, find an unknown and make her a star.
According to Twitch you can add Blake Lively’s (pictured right) name to the long list of actresses who have been offered and rejected the lead part in the proposed big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel.
Among those who have passed so far are Natalie Portman (who’s serving here as producer), Emma Stone, Mia Wasikowska, Scarlett Johansson, and who knows who else that hasn’t been publicly confirmed.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will be directed by Craig Gillespie from a script by his Fright Night redux cohort Marti Noxon based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. It centers on Elizabeth Bennet’s quest for love and independence amid the outbreak of a virus that turns the dead into zombies. The story’s set in an alternate version of 19th Century England that features deadly ancestors roaming the countryside.
More (hopefully) soon!
